Man spills student’s intestines

The excitement of ushering in the Christmas turned into a nightmarish experience for a student who was stabbed with a broken bottle leading to the gushing out of his intestines.

An unemployed man, Francis Magnus Baidoo, who allegedly stabbed the student, Prince Kwame Anim, has been hauled before an Accra Magistrate Court to face the law over his action.

Presenting the facts of the case to the court, Chief inspector Gregory Yeboah said both the complainant, Anim, a student and Baidoo lived at Adabraka, in Accra.

The prosecutor said on the night of December 24, 2015, there was a live band stand at Bermuda Spot, a drinking bar located in Adabraka, to usher in the Christmas festivities.

According to Chief inspector Yeboah, the live band music went deep into the night and at 1:00am of December 25, 2015, the father of Baidoo, who was seriously, dancing alleged that Anim had stolen his wallet from his pocket while dancing. This led to a heated argument between the two.


In the heat of the argument, Baidoo broke an empty bottle and stabbed Anim in the abdomen which led to his intestines gushing out.

Anim was rushed to the Ridge Hospital for treatment.

Baidoo has been charged with attempted manslaughter before the court, presided over by Ms Arit Nsemoh.

He was remanded in police custody pending trial, when he appeared in court on January 18, 2016.
